The Anglican Missions Board enables the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia, in a spirit of partnership, to share in the global dimension to Christ's mission of proclaiming the Gospel, nurturing believers, responding to human need, transforming society, and caring for creation.
We commend to you this Appeal. More than one million people have arrived in Bangladesh seeking food, shelter, and safety. Since 25 August 2017 violence has intensified in Myanmar's Rakhine province, and more than 720,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh - 55% of them are children. ACT Alliance is working to increase local resilience and strengthen homes as well as meet the needs of the most vulnerable. Photo ACT Alliance Md.-Kamrul Hasan more»
Please read the latest newsletter, below under 'more', received from ACoM - the Anglican Church of Melanesia. Here at Anglican Missions we are supporting three 'on-going small scale projects' for three of the religious communities of ACoM this year.

Anglican Missions is supporting the Christian World Service appeal for donations to support the survivors of last month’s disaster in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. Nearly 2,000 people have been confirmed dead, 74,444 displaced and over 1.1 million affected. Numbers are expected to rise further. An estimated 65,733 houses are damaged and electricity has only been partly restored. Hungry survivors have stopped relief deliveries before they reach their intended destination. The high level of damage has slowed recovery efforts. Photo: ACT Alliance Indonesia volunteer at Petobo in south Palu. Credit: ACT Alliance-Yakkum-M A Setyawan more»

An estimated 5000 people are still missing. CWS (Christian World Service) has launched an appeal and through its in-country partners, will assist with the provision of food, clean water, hygiene kits, sanitation and medical care.
